A helping hand for Anne with Motor Neuron Disease

A helping hand for Anne with Motor Neuron Disease

Personal message

My beautiful mom was sadly diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease 5 years ago, which most people know is fatal.

Life expectancy after diagnosis is between 3-5 years. Motor Neuron Disease (ALS) occurs when specialist nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, called motor neurons, stop working properly, causing slow paralysis of the body, and eventually death.

Since my moms' diagnosis my family has never asked for any help or financial assistance, and as I sit here typing this plea I still struggle to push the submit button on this crowd funding platform to make it go viral. However, there comes a time to put ones pride in their pocket and try to reach out to the kindness in people and ask for help from those that can afford give...

The medical bills keep on coming in and the cost to care for a disabled person is truly overwhelming. My dad finds himself at 67 working to cover these enormous costs and I believe he is battling to stay afloat, even though he would never admit it.

Some heavy costs that he has incurred, to name a few, include: Wheel chair, caregiver, hospital bed, bi-pap machine, hoist, disabled bathroom conversion, wheel chair ramps.

With all of his offspring living in far away cities, my dad with all of his unwavering love, cares for my ailing mom.

Please help to take a little stress off our dad, Philip (aka Wonderphil).

Thanking you in advance from the belly off our hearts!
